It beats me why there is no world body in sport to initiate punitive action — I don’t mean little fines and suspension for a couple of games — on those indulging in racism in any form. It’s a hydra-headed monster with far more destructive implications than even doping. And we don’t need research to tell us whether a monkey chant is a racial taunt or a bhajan by devotees of Lord Hanuman.
